This workshop focuses on DfAM methods that identifies opportunities for increased complexities in design. The aim of the workshop is to understand the new found design freedom in Additive Manufacturing and optimizing the existing design using various tools. Faculty, Research scholars, Postgraduate and Graduate students from various institutions and delegates from the industries can register for the program. An understanding of various design methods, and computer-aided design are the prerequisites for attending the program .
Design is the primary step for any manufacturing activity. Proper design with manufacturing knowledge shortens the product development life cycle. Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DFMA) is typically meant for designers to eliminate manufacturing difficulties and minimize manufacturing, assembly and logistics costs in conventional manufacturing methods by tailoring the design. Whereas, for Additive Manufacturing (AM), often simply called 3D printing, provides nearly unrestricted freedom to design parts. It offers designers and manufacturers the ability to produce shapes and designs that would be impossible to produce using conventional manufacturing technologies such as molding or machining. Designing products for layer based Additive Manufacturing (AM) is gaining importance as AM opens-up new possibilities for optimized design.
Customize the design for personalization and flexibility and at the same time achieve the low-cost of mass production.
Achieve part count reduction for ease of assembly and simplify the product design yet introduce more shape complexity.
Introduce intricate lattice structures with structural optimization to reduce weight and efficiency of mobility solutions.
Design multi-material and gradient structures to take advantage of possible material complexity in AM.
Iterative design process that outputs optimized design that meets real-world manufacturing constraints.
Design repeating structures in macro, meso, micro and nano scales to get superior performance.
Optimize material layout within a given design space, for a given set of loads, boundary conditions and constraints.
Design for manufacturing using subtractive as well as additive processes to achieve material efficiency.
Modeling for Hybrid AM
Design shells and assign material for realizing full-color multi-material products with digital materials
Integrate as many technical functions as possible into as few parts as possible to take advantage of design freedom in AM.
IIITDM Kancheepuram was established in the year 2007 to focus on Information Technology enabled Design and Manufacturing education for catering to the needs of the industry. It is one of the Institutes of National Importance, fully funded by MHRD, Govt. of India. The institute offers four undergraduate programs, five dual degree programs, four post graduate programs and doctoral programs. The courses are more oriented towards design and manufacturing, where the students get specialized in their domain with design as a connecting thread.
